Bible Road Trip is an exciting journey which places you and your children in the driver’s seat! Aimed at youth grades PreK-12, Bible Road Trip will allow your family to survey the Bible cover-to-cover in 3 years ~ with breaks for summer!
This week we’re looking at the book of Deuteronomy ~ the last book of the Law. The prayer focus for the Grammar levels covers Iraq. For Dialectic and Rhetoric students (middle school and high school), the prayer focus is Pakistan, Iraq and Nepal.

Each of the five developmental stages has a one to four page syllabus each week. Because the Bible Road Trip curriculum is designed to be used over the course of a five-day week, your family may have the time and desire to do every activity. On the other hand, you may wish to pick and choose your activities. For example, you may also find that your child loves to notebook, but doesn’t care for crafting. Bible Road Trip was designed to give your family the flexibility to fit the curriculum to your family’s needs.
The third page of the syllabus covers the “Explore Further” section. Here, you’ll find “Learning More about the Word” and “Crafting Through the Word”.
“Crafting Through the Word” allows children to really internalize what they’ve been learning. In the case of the Rhetoric level study, “Crafting” allows students to process what they’ve learned, research some aspect of the Bible, and share their new-found knowledge with others. “Crafting Through the Word” changes as children age, so we’ve covered the different age levels over the last few weeks. This week, we’ll talk about grades 10-12.
For the Rhetoric levels (grades 10-12), the crafting section of Bible Road Trip is designed to help high school students communicate what they’ve been learning about the Bible with others. By the time your student is in high school, they should be developmentally moving into the “rhetoric” stage of learning, where they are ready to effectively present information, respond to questions, and really share their faith and knowledge.
I’ve suggested that rhetoric students choose a topic each week to blog or share a video presentation about. It is completely at the discretion of each family whether this presentation is made public. Whether your student shares their thoughts over the internet, or just with your family or youth group, I urge you to consider having your child write about their studies each week. The practice of sharing their new knowledge of the Bible will not only help cement the information in their mind, but will help them gain the confidence to speak about God’s Word with some authority.
* Is your rhetoric student sharing what he or she is learning in some way? If they are sharing in a public manner, please share a link with us, so we can check it out! 🙂
